A user has got his hands on the beta version of firmware 2.50.
Good job Sony good job
Yeah it is a great update, most excited for Suspend/Resume and 60fps for Remote Play and Shareplay
button assignments is cool too
Seriously, MoldyBread; Besides the suspend / resume feature - which I have been waiting for on all apps, not just Netflix, YouTube, etc. - button mapping is really top-notch stuff. This is a system-wide change, so any buttons you are used to in all apps will be modified.
Some really cool update functions for sure, great job Sony! I wonder how button assignments work - does it remap the UI or games or both? As a XB1 owner, I hope to see this function at some point since a lot of times button configurations can be frustrating.
I read somewhere last week it only applies to the ui unfortunately.
According to Scott McCarthy, yes you can. Here read it yourself. Auron2 asks - ”*Users will also be able to reassign buttons for DualShock 4, making it easier for users with limited manual dexterity or limited reach and strength to play.” "Wow, wait. Does this mean we can actually force custom control settings into any game? That would be cool" And Scoot McCarthy replies - "Not the primary intended purpose but yes you are correct!" http://blog.us.playstation.... Comment no.22
@dantesparda Wow Really ? that means PS4 users can get rid of the Dedicated Launch button on DmC because we can force it..that's a big plus. i will have to try that out later in the year During down time. maybe with this old school fan's might be able to fix the Launch in DmC to how it was in older games
Meanwhile not a single improvement to library management or folders for installed games. It would be nice to hide all of the useless betatests in my library.
I like it so far. I wish they wouldn't have put that PS Store tab down on the main screen though, it was fine where it was. Also super excited for the Spotify integration and I can't wait to have all of my Destiny data deleted in 60fps over SharePlay!
Playstation Now for Germany ? YES!!!
Wurde auch mal zeit ;-) Finally! I would love to play god of war 3 again, if it's available ofcourse.
Mir ist egal.
Why did they have to put playstation store on the home screen :/
Seriously! It was fine where it was.
I hope thy move it back! Honestly, bring back the XMB, this new UI is nothin but a headache and disorganized. It's probably my only pet peeve
eh? No offence but it's one of the simplest UI's i've ever used, it's quick to navigate and you can fly between menu's with ease. Are you using it blind folded?
Look at all those disagrees the PS3 ui was horrid I think everyone knows that. The ps4 ui is farrrrrrrr better more easy to use and it's better than the X1 ui.
I thought the XMB won, like, a billion fucking design awards or something? And everybody was praising it last gen. I thought it was elegant and highly functional. But all those disagrees, man...
Those disagrees are probably because he's saying the still straightforward ui of the PS4 is some difficult mess when it's not. Don't know why any of you would have jumped to the conclusion you did.
There isn't a huge difference between the XMB and the PS4 UI. PS4 just has another section of the XMB for apps/games. All the stuff that was there before is still there, and it's pretty easy to navigate. The social media stuff can look cluttered when you highlight a game, but you can mostly ignore it to start a game or do whatever.
Did I just see a back-up to USB option? thank god, now I can update my HDD eventually.
yeah I did a 1 tb update, it was a pain in the arse to restore everything. I'll eventually want a 2 tb drive, but I dreaded doing it again. Backing everything up to external drive will help immensely!
I'm really glad I decided to upgrade it right out of the box before playing anything. I remember how much of a pain it was to do with the PS3.
Anyone know if button assignment is per game or for all games?
For all games. It's system wide, so if you switch X for O, every game, app and everything you use will have that configuration.
This is such a great feature for gamers, especially for those that are disabled.
The trophy pictures are going to be a pain in the a$$!! I hope there will be an option to disable them
They won't be a pain if it does it automatically, it will never get in the way if it's doing it in the background. If your worried about clogging up the HD with pictures thats just good house keeping, I regularly clear unwanted pictures and videos. I like the idea but an option to turn it off would appease those not in favour.
I agree. I really don't want to have to keep clearing out pics from my hard drive. We need an option to turn that off.
Pictures take up so little memory you will hardly even notice it, and it seems like it does it automatically.
Meh... nothing that I like. I guess i'll wait another 4-5 months for Folders Online friend notfications wallpapers Appear offline USB video DLNA give it what the PS3 has had for years. Edit: @ BiggerBoss No I don't like any of that or I would have said I did.
So you dont like Suspend/resume or 60 fps shareplay, but you care so much about friend notifications? Lol
THIS >>> "nothing that I LIKE" who are you to judge what a person likes or wants?
I couldn't care less about suspend/resume and shareplay either.
@antikbaka i wasnt judging anyone lol, do you know what "judge" means?? I was asking him a question. @both replies if you guys would honestly prefer to see your friends notifications rather than trying games for free at 60 fps, then thats your prerogative. I've been waiting for suspend/resume since launch, and I would take it over online notifications ANY day.
pretty sure its 60fps remoteplay not shareplay but I could be mistaken. Not many games are running at 60fps anyway so it doesn't really matter all that much, at least not yet
The Sony user that has been posting on the blog, clearly stated DLNA and friends notifications are coming. They just don't want to copy and paste from the ps3 to ps4
Thank you for reading, most people these days are to lazy to read.
I'll be so happy when DLNA comes. That and the FX channel app.
entitled brat gamers dont like to read, and we all know reading is very important.
I wish people would stop going on about DNLA, we know Sony are working on it as they hinted at it in a blog comments section, they don't just want to throw it in without doing it properly. The simple fact is, Sony and other console makers can't win, add great features, someone will moan about something else. MY TV/Blu-ray player, PS3 all do DNLA, so to be honest this feature is not of my prime concern for a games console.
I really don't get it either. My PC does it, even my phone does it!
I know, so many other devices will handle your DLNA needs that it's not a priority for PS4. I'm glad they worked on killer features like SharePlay first.
so because you have other means of DLNA anyone else shouldn't have access to it on PS4 ? how about instead of complaining about other people complaining you stop complaining about others complaining. if it annoys you so much stop reading other people's comments or better yet stop using the internet if opinions hurt your feelings.
Perhaps they don't want to have their blu-ray player or PS3 still connected just for DLNA. Its not crazy to expect the PS4 to support it considering the PS3 had it pretty much since launch and the PS4 has been out for almost a year and a half
The fact that my PS3, phone, tablet, and so on can all do this and my PS4 can't makes it even more baffling to me why they left this feature out. My TV, my Chromecast, my PS3, my tablet, and my phone can all access Netflix as well. Doesn't mean I don't also want it on my PS4, which they apparently realized and made that happen from day one. DLNA support should have been there from day one as well.
to all those still complaining about DNLA (which i personally dont care about) what part of WE DO NOT WANT TO COPY AND PASTE FROM PS3 TO PS4 do you not understand? they also dont want copy and paste friends notification. when they've made them specific to PS4 it will be released constantly whining about makes you look like entitled brats.
You did realize that this update was meant to allow a lot of disabled players to have less trouble playing. Sometimes you have to give what some people need and wait for the features people want.
Online friend notifications have been on ps4 for a very long time. It's under, you guessed it, notifications!
He means a notification on when you're friends come online, which guess what, is not an option. You can be notified when they join a party but not when they come online. I do wish they had the option to appear offline though. I don't want to come off a jerk to my friends but I don't want to be in a party everytime I play.
Just so you know, people regularly mention DLNA to Sony. On the recent blog concerning the update, one of the Sony firmware guys mentioned that they "don't want to do a copy and paste of last gen" and will implement it when they can make a"next gen" version of it. Sounds to me like it isn't a matter of if, but when.
the only thing i won't from firmware - starting screen like in Library section (because I want to see what I have immediately, it's bothersome to slide from one end to another) and as customable as possible. I don't need any film factory or playroom
Interesting and cool. The video could have benefited from some music. That was boring to watch. Excited for the update regardless.
Wow, the ps4 UI looks fast and simple to use. I have an Xbox one right now and the UI is kinda slow, clunky and a mess. Some things are even slower than the Xbox 360. Hopefully we get a UI overhaul soon.
This Went to a friends house a while ago and he has an xbox one , i was surprised that it was slower than the ps4 ui, i had always thought you could snap right away
Well seeing as the system is running 3 os I expect it would run a tad slower than PS4 UI.
I agree, my only gripe with my X1 is the UI, it is so cumbersome to use, it takes forever to find anything, thank god for pinning.
I'm guessing that since they are downplaying the metro interface for Win 10, they might do something to revamp the interface on the Xbox One. But since this is Microsoft, I'd give it 50/50 chance they make it worse :(
I've seen the complaints on the Xbox feedback website and i see many people complaining about the same things. Fingers crossed that they do listen and change it for the better. But I do agree that it's a 50/50.
When is this releasing?
Probably end of the month as that is when Spotify releases.
Could someone link the youtube vid. Network at work is blocking it from N4G but could go to youtube to watch it later.
I think the video is deleted
Well that just sucks :(
Download chrome and then download browsec from the chrome web store in extensions and you can access nah website without having to do anything illegal or be caught
What was that Playstation Videos about on the home screen?
It was originally called Video Unlimted. Sony just rebranded it to Playstation Videos. Same program though.
BUTTON ASSIGNMENTS!!!!! Awesome!
